When our car throw tantrum ....

Sigh..... 6th Dec 07 is really a day to remember. Not a good day but the worse day of the year. Here's what happened : Half way driving to work, I heard this funny sound from my car and suddenly saw the temperature shoot up till nearing the HOT. So, dilemma of pulling aside or keep driving coz vy near to office already and thank god I make it to office and call for help from office. To make it worse, it's a rainy day... sigh ....

So, what's wrong with this little missy of ours? Got all over heated and I running up and down during lunch time to check on her after feeding her with water. Finally, found out she's leaking somewhere.... got to call tow truck to tow her to hospital in Balakong to be fixed. Told my boss and off I went to fix her.

I am so happy that MAA cover part of the towing fees ( I just paid RM80) and they provide the latest towing truck (look below). So, off we go to the hospital (worshop) and diagnose her real problem. Got some good news, just the metal pipe leaking, so, just going to cost RM 190. Got it fixed by end of the day.

Then, on Sat, my worst fear came true.... this lil car of ours broke down again and this time it's major... radiaotor burst and casket might be having problem.... so, now sitting in the workshop pending to be fixed. Sigh..... what a way to end 2007.

this car seems to have attached itself to me. whenever i say sell, it breaks down. so we've decided to keep it. i'm planning an engine transplant. any recommendations or guru to see for advice? thinking of mitsubishi engine, new paint, rebuilt the under carraige (replace all rubber bush)... make it "diam-diam ubi berisi" type of racer...
